This is one of the great Australian songs of all time. When you think back on music since 1963 – the year that The Beatles started revolutionising music forever – there have been so many styles that have come in and out of fashion. Think pop, metal, glam rock, punk, etc, etc.

Around 1971, there was the progressive rock genre and this is arguably one of the best examples of the genre. The instrumentation, the structure, the lyrics – it couldn’t be from any other era that in and around 1971.

An amazing song recorded by a wonderful ensemble who then broke up and went their separate ways. Not sure why but at least they left us this masterpiece.
